Hi Eleanor,If you click on the Microsoft Security Essentials icon in the System Tray you can set up a scan time which will update the program before the scan starts. Just Tab to the, Change my scan schedule and press the Enter key, then use the Tab key to change the options. You can also manually update the virus and spyware definitions by Tabbing to the Home button then arrow right once to the Update button. Tab once to Update and press the Enter key to start the update. To check if any virus or spyware was found, Tab to the Home button then arrow right twice to the History button.
Now Tab once then use your down arrow and select, All Detected Items. Tab again and if any nasties are found it will tell you what they are.If there are no nasties, then you will just Tab between the History button and the All Detected Items option.
Press Alt F4 to exit the program which will leave it in the System Tray. Tom.----- Original Message ----- From: "Eleanor Burke" <eleanorburke@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
